have seen within the gop recently. which obama will show up for the state of the union and more importantly the spending battle ahead? here to help us make sense of it buzz feed contributor, blake zeff. you have been writing a lot about this. i guess what i'm trying to make sense of right now is where obama is sort of strategically on this. two summers ago during the debt ceiling talks, there was signals of the white house to raise the eligible age of medicare like two months ago signals ago cpi change is good and then paul ryan saying i don't think there's anything and going to accept the sequester, you know which touches defense and not the social safety net at all and that's it. have we entered a new face and medicare and medicaid off the table? what do you think? >> i wouldn't be so sure. you're right the president is all over the map on this and yesterday there's an interview with him in "the new republic" and might have been code words and wanted the talk about judicious reforms to medicare and mart changes to social security and how he's willing
obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his plate. >> all right. peter alexander, white house correspondent, thank you so much. >>> we want to turn now to our discussion this morning. bring in a reporter for "politico," anna -- and perry
income, and spending is obvious because a surreal driver of our deficits and our debt. spending is the reason that we're up against the $16.2 trillion debt limit. spending was the reason that congress and president obama raised the debt ceiling by $2.1 trillion just a year and a half ago. now, in 2006, the junior senator from illinois, senator obama, came to the floor, made a very passionate and thoughtful statement here on the senate floor in opposition to raising the debt limit. many of the reasons that he gave then are relevant today. in fact, they are even more appropriate because the national debt is much, much higher. and we have a fiscal mess. it's instructive for my colleagues to hear the words straight from then-senator obama. he delivered these remarks on march 16, 2006. at that time the senate was debating raising the debt limit by $781 billion to a new limit then that seems very small today, about half what it is today, raising the limit of 2006 to $8.9 trillion. so i thought it would be worth for the president's benefit as well as our benefit to go over what then-se
be priced out of health insurance because of tobacco penalties. president obama's health care law says the affordable health care act will allow insurers to charge thousands more than nonsmokers. if you make $35,000 a year, you could spend $8,000 in insurance. >> check the bang statement and make sure the money is there, visa has an alert saying watch for a way of a.t.m. fraud and so-called cash outs, possibly involving stolen data and fake cards. apple shores skipped alive after the iphone and ipod maker reports slowest growth in years and the drop in stock weighs on the nasdaq yesterday. now, apple says a chinese manufactureers has been uses dozens of workers under 16 revealed in an internal report. >> on friday morning, did you see any fog on way in? >> a little bit, and a little drizzle. why he if that is the technical term mike would use. drizzle? mist? >> i believe he has used that term before. also used the term drist and mizzhle. >> clouds and a stray shower, and upper 50's and most of us in the low-to-mid 60's, in the sierra the snow is still there but the same snow from a mon
spending, it's also a thinly veiled bluff." is it? >> yeah, you might remember hearing in the election that president obama was haollowing out the military, they were going to prevent the hundreds of millions of cuts that president obama was going to put in. these were not new cuts we were talking about. this is all about the sequester, which is a policy that paul ryan voted for as part of the budget control act. republicans from paul ryan to mitt romney all the way on down spent most of the election in 2012 arguing that the sequester would be a complete disaster, because of what it would do to the military. now they're saying, after they lost the election and after the retreat, that absolutely, they don't mind the sequester at all, it's no big deal, they're happy to let it happen if democrats don't move. in that way, it's become a somewhat transparent bluff, which doesn't mean the bluff won't be called and we won't have the sequester. one thing i should say about the sequester, it's bad policy. >> what do you think is going to happen? >> i don't think it will happen for very long. i t
of it is spending on those of the highest levels spend a smaller percentage of their income to live and have the advantage of a tax system created for this advantage. during the debates with romney and obama, he mentioned that they were going to be just fine because obama was the champion of the koran the middle class and romney is the champion of the upper class. those investors are going to save the country. the point made by obama is that they were going to be just fine. i guess, where the way the tax structure have set up, they can get down to 10% because they can get tax is done because of corporations and the whole ball of wax. the other taxes considered by patrick included a gas tax and a toll increase on the pike. insurance pay the tolls and pay the gap. the rich people and the higher- income people will not be paying this tax at the same percentage. host: let's take a look at some of the details you hinted that. the associated press says he wants to hide to the income-tax from 5.25% up to 6.25% while eliminating itemize deductions. he is calling for reducing the sales tax from 6.25%
they didn't know. >> it is just the beginning there elements of obama care that have not yet been put into effect. we will spend the next year or two or five or ten allergic what's in this massive piece of legislation. it's going to be like christmas. >> go to ff weekend on twitter and let us know how you feel he about that story. also this story. remember this teacher down in south carolina? he in his classroom there in an effort to show how incredible freedom in this country is, and freedom of speech, ripped an american flag off of the wall in one ever american classments on three different occasions and stomped on it to show his class, he says is an educational exercise that this is freedom of speech. this is why america is free because we are able to express ourselves in this way without being thrown in prison. he was fired for that. now he wants his job back. >> it sounds like, i mean, well, let me get the other side. it sounds like first during this lesson he spoke glowingly of the united states and of the freedoms and privileges we have here. is he not known as anti-american te
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over
for the office. >> certainly for the romneys, i think george bush is ill and his kids should be able to spend as much time as possible with him. >> stephanie: yeah. four years ago when the republicans sat in a room on the night of barack obama inauguration, planning on how to destroy his presidency. >> stephanie: yes. >> and anybody thought they were taking a break from that plan -- >> stephanie: don't you love that mcconnell said the inauguration speech was -- a lot of liberalism. to a country we still believe is center right. oh, okay. you continue to believe whatever you want to believe -- >> and romney is going to win in november. i don't know who their pollster is, but they need to hire a new one. and 95% of it was perfectly main stream. this country is center left, and the sooner the republican party gets wise to it, the better for them. >> stephanie: yes, and on each and every issue, americans agree with him, so if that is center right -- >> the right-wing anti-gays came out with tweets saying gay people have all of the rights that everybody else has. that's how delusi
